theories+lead

- Nordic Cross *Cornwall - St Piran, St Petroc and St Michael *Croatia – Saint Joseph *Cuba – Our Lady of Charity * The flag of Russia has the same colours as the Dutch flag, in a different order. Although the origin of the flag remains disputed, two theories lead to a Dutch origin in the choice of colours. The first theory states that the origin lies in Tsar Alexis I of Russia's Dutch-born lead ship engineer mentioning these colours as they were used by ships sailing under the flag of the Dutch Republic. This was in answer to a requested suggestion by the Tsar in 1668, who was to introduce the first flag of the Russian Empire that year. The other, probably romanticized and less accurate theory it is related to Peter the Great, who has first introduced these colours as the naval flag of the Russian Empire after a Dutch frigate was delivered to him from Amsterdam in 1694, bearing the Dutch flag. * The flags of several former and current Slavic nations, such as the State of Slovenes, Croats, and Serbs, Yugoslavia, Croatia, Slovenia, and Serbia all have the Pan-Slavic colours in three horizontal bands in their flags, in various permutations of the colours. Note that these colours are derived from the Russian flag, which in turn was possibly based on the Dutch flag. * The flag of Schleswig-Holstein resembles the Dutch flag, but is inverted. Although Schleswig-Holstein is close to the Netherlands, geographically, the flag was created in the 19th century by taking the blue from the blue and yellow of the Schleswig flag and the red and white of the Holstein flag. The yellow from the Schleswig flag was dropped since a French-style tricolore was more in vogue at the time.

Croatia

Tourism (Tourism in Croatia) dominates the Croatian service sector and accounts for up to 20% of Croatian GDP. Annual tourist industry income for 2011 was estimated at €6.61 billion. Its positive effects are felt throughout the economy of Croatia in terms of increased business volume observed in retail business, processing industry orders and summer seasonal employment. The industry is considered an export business, because it significantly reduces the country's external trade imbalance.

The bulk of the tourist industry is concentrated along the Adriatic Sea coast. Opatija was the first holiday resort since the middle of the 19th century. By the 1890s, it became one of the most significant European health resorts.

Croatia has unpolluted marine areas reflected through numerous nature reserves and 116 Blue Flag beaches.
